Fresh off the announcement of Jack Dorseyreclaiming his CEO throne and the increasingly probable rumor that the 140-character tweet limit might soon be abandoned, Twitter has launched a new feature called Moments. With Moments, users can get a quick but entirely immersive look at the best of what's happening on Twitter at any given time.
